Can clear by itself: Threadworms (pinworms) are only significant in the individual who develops an allergic/irritant response to the glue like material the eggs are laid in near the anus. The more intense the response, the more intense the itching & problematic for the patient. The infestation can shed naturally & not return unless ingestion of new eggs occurs. Otc treatments are available.
OTC meds/yes: There are a variety of over the counter products that may help you rid someone of threadworms. They come with names like pinx. There are also prescription meds that will work. The worm is passed througn eggs that contaminate bedclothes, play areas, etc and end up on fingers. They travel though the mouth to your digestive tract where they infect you.
Avoid Re-infestation: If you are referring to Pinworms, re-infestation is a major reason for persistent infestation; additionally the prescription medication must be repeated in 2 wks. Suggest the following: wash hands/scrub nails with brush after using toilet/before eating, launder bedding/clothes in hot water/hot dryer frequently, wear underwear to bed/launder daily, treat other household members simultaneously.
See her doctor: Very unusual to get this infection at this age, kindly see her pediatrician soon, best wishes
Hi, I have had pinworms / threadworms but they keep coming back (despite following strict hygeine measures) for about 6 weeks. I have been taking Mebendazole every 1 - 2 weeks to try and get rid of them. Are there any side effects for taking Mebendazole l
Not at that dose: If this is not working, consider you may not have pin worms. The peri-anal itching most often associated with PW's can be caused by a number of thongs, as diverse as a strep dermatitis, a reaction to foods, etc. Unless you have had PW's identified, I would look to another cause. If you are getting re-infected, some human in your environment is giving it to you.
Threadworm/pinworm: The threadwork/pinworm is a human only parasite that usually inhabits the lower intestines. The adult worm crawls out the folds of the anus & lays eggs in a glue like substance that triggers itching. That itching easily disburses the eggs within bed linen or clothing where it can contaminate fingers & be re-introduced to the mouth. Any contact of contaminated fingers with the mouth can recycle it.
Do threadworms cause bloating, nausea and dizziness? What's the best course of treatment for an adult? And should my dog be treated at the same time?
Not specifically: The only predictable symptom of this parasite is the anal itching in those who react to the glue like material the eggs are laid in at your anus. It is a parasite specific to humans, you have no need to worry about your dog.
Threadworms (UK): Known as pinworms in the us. Pinworm infections are rarely spread through the use of swimming pools (unless heavly infested with e. Vermicularis). Re-infection rate is high & all close contacts should be simultaneously treated. Frequent hand washing and clipping the nails, as well as washing of bedding and clothing will help minimize rate of re-infection.
Wash: Your bedding in hot water.Get a more detailed answer ›
Secondary med: Current reccomendations list Praziquantel at 5-10 mg/kg x 1 dose as the preferred agent for tapeworm due to effectiveness & simplicity of treatment. Albendazole at a dose of 15mg/kg divided 2x/day for 1-6 mo may be effective but is certainly a harder rx to complete. See harriet lane handbook of pediatric antimicrobial therapy.
Pin-x: This is a chewable tablet that will treat pinworms or threadworms. There is also a liquid form available

What do you suggest if my sisters got threadworm and we all have to take tablets to treat it however I cannot physically take tablets so please help?
OTC liquid: There are a variety of over the counter PW medications that come in powder form and can be suspended in water.
No: As above, hopefully, you are getting the threadworm treated
Took mebendazole threadworm medicine for 3days. And got better but not completely cured. What medicne should I take? It came of my face.
Pinworms: You touch and then swallow tiny worm eggs which hatch in the gut. Female worms emerge around the anus (and vagina in females) at night to lay more eggs and secrete mucus that makes you scratch the area. The eggs stick to your fingers or nails and then they can be transferred anywhere. There's a lot more to a cure than just the drug, like strict hygiene and treating family members as well.See 1 more doctor answer
